Cooler Master NovaTouch TKL Review

It’s been a long time pestering Cooler Master, but I have finally got my hands on a Nova Touch to take a look at. A different take on the mechanical keyboard trend in effect at the moment. It features hybrid capacitive switches from Topre, rather than Cherry MX or other clone switches.

They offer a distinctively different feel over Cherry MX style switches and of course this means that much like AMD vs nVidia; there are two camps that believe their switch is the better of the two.

I won’t try to be the man who tries to prove which is better as it is purely subjective.
